Reform Sasscer Movement wishes Superintendent Kevin Maxwell success. We hope that he will address issues concerning racism, discrimination, corruption and others identified in our blogs. At the moment the following groups are under represented despite having a large population of their members within PG County. The Latino population and Africans are not part of the management structure despite having the necessary numbers as tax payers within Prince George’s county.( Read more), (more). There is no African principal in more than 200 schools despite having the percentage. There is only one (1) Latino Principal despite having a large population of Latinos in Prince Georges County. Something is wrong with that picture. The Time has come to change the status quo and create accountability. “All men are born equal in the eyes of God.” We hope Superintendent Maxwell and County Executive Baker will embrace all groups without any discrimination as we move forward into the near future and innovate the county. Always remember that, The Earth is not a gift from our parents, it is a loan from our children. (See our top priorities here)
Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual). ~ Ayn Rand
